Overtake! (Anime) add
I'll say it right away, if you want something like Initial D for motorsport or something like Blue Lock when you see motorsport/sport this is not the series for you. This is closer to a Mitsuru Adachi work where the sport itself is just a back drop to the characters. That being said I initially didn't bother with Overtake! even with it looking decent as I had MF Ghost to satisfy my vroom vroom needs for the season and honestly it was a crime to not pick this up til now. Every synopsis for this series has done it a grave injustice ...

Preliminary (5/12 eps)
The show is placed in a historical time period I'd say is late Meiji/Early Taisho from aesthetics alone but with a bit of a supernatural twist to the time period. Replace daimyo with families that have special powers to represent political power and you got the setting for what's going on as the powers of both are whither away for reasons in both contexts.

Story: I'll be real here it's gonna be a rough ride for all 12 ep. Not in the writing is bad kind of sense but the "oh god we're watching some terrible shit happen to this poor girl" deal. ...

Preliminary (3/12 eps)
Honestly I dunno if I was in some fever dream to give the manga version of this an 8/10 where as I think the anime is utter trash or if the anime is just that bad. Legit the only thing I can praise this series for is the opening being great.

Story/Character: I dunno if it's because of manga to anime translation I legit can't stand the characters who are the life line of the story. They're all just so 1 dimensional it its not even funny. It's like the series is trying to be the next Gotobun but it's just falling ...

So this is a bit more of a personal review than an overall critical review. I'll come out and say I'm biased and I think this is his best work. This was the least like his usual works and I think that was for the best.

Story: It's no shocker that the main theme is the 3/11 earthquake but all the other event areas were historical disasters and its a travel of Suzume and Souta traveling to these areas to prevent those events from happening again. The people they meet along the way are just everyday people living their lives trying to get ...

Preliminary (3/13 eps)
So this sort of caught my eye when I first saw it but put it off to the side thinking "eh if I'm bored enough I'll get to it." Sure enough I wasn't feeling watching any of the current stuff I was but wanted to watch something. I decided to take the plunge and gave ep 1 a shot in-between playing FF14. I watched all 3 ep that are out back to back. I wasn't even half way through ep 1 and I was telling friends "I think this might be my favorite of the season."

The art direction with the sky ...

Hands down the dumbest series of the season. I enjoy it.

Story: I honestly didn't know what to expect going in but MC gets isekai'd and due to the events of EP 1 summons the god his father worshiped and realized "my dad wasn't full of it with his cult after all." Then has to essentially make a cult in a world without religion and using shady practices like cults would.

Character: There's not much to them really and that's fine for now. They all work pretty well with each other.

Art: The biggest fault of the series is the art. The 2D ...

Mou Ippon! (Anime) add
Preliminary (9/13 eps)
If anyone would told me that this anime would have be one of my favorites of the season, I would have laughed at them. I had it on the list to check but every time I would open it early on to watch I would just close it and say "I'm just not feeling it." Finally got around to sitting down to watch it and next thing you know I was at episode 8.

Story: Would say the characters are the story. It's a simple story of girls doing judo and their development as both judo players and people as the story ...

Preliminary (8/12 eps)
Put this in the winter 2023 season where it's the diabeetus category along with Koori Zokusei. Manage your glucose levels if you end up watching both at once.

This was easily my #1 show this season I was awaiting for in winter 2023, does it live up to what I was hoping for? Most part yeah but that's because I wasn't expecting Koori Zokusei to get me as hard as it has so at very least this is a close 2nd if not just barely ahead.

Story: The story at first and even as it goes feels very light but there's ...

Preliminary (7/12 eps)
This series has potential to still be good but something about it just tells me the story won't ever truly improve. The source material is 17 novels long so meaning whatever this ends at with ep 12 will mean there's still a good amount to go but after what I've seen of the anime I'm not hopeful it will improve.

Art: It's decent, there's nothing exceptional to write home about but it's serviceable and the characters look nice.

The real big issue is the characters and story itself. I state this now there will be plot elements and character spoilers ahead.

The main character Ann has ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (3/12 eps)
The Nier anime is Schrodinger's anime. It's both at the same time really good and then really freaking bad. I really want to love the anime of this but I just can't because of various issues which I will get into in a bit. I'm not trying to dunk on this because it's popular and I hate popular things. I've bought this game 3 times at this point. Digital JP because it came out early in Japan but still had all the language support, physical English release and then the Steam version which required a fan patch for years to ...
